Zandra Rhodes is among the world’s truly iconic fashion designers. From her beginnings in the late 1960s, where her early textile designs were considered too outrageous by the traditional British manufacturers, to the punk-era of the 1970s, Zandra has always been ahead of the curve.
Zandra is just one of the top names bringing her individualistic vision to Bath in Fashion 2016 this April and her involvement extends to an exciting collaboration with another visionary designer – Nicholas Wylde, award-winning Bath and Bristol designer jeweller. Nicholas is among the top jewellery designers in the world with his own bespoke diamond cut, the Wylde Flower Diamond – a patented diamond that has more precisely cut facets than any other diamond for a truly special sparkle.
In a unique collaboration, Zandra and Nicholas have teamed-up to produce a one-off, bespoke jewellery creation – a pendant – that already has the fashion pack’s attention! This gorgeous item of jewellery will be unveiled in Nicholas Wylde Bath store window from Monday April 18th and then at the Designer Fashion Show of Bath in Fashion on April 22 which Nicholas is proud to be a part of and sponsoring (Tickets available from bathinfashion.co.uk website.)
The pendant has been designed by Zandra and then lovingly crafted by Nicholas in silver, 9ct rose gold, pink sapphires and diamonds – resulting in a unique, quality collaboration between the two artisans. The pendant, engraved with Zandra’s signature, has a value of £2,000 and tickets to enter a draw resulting in one lucky winner are on sale from Monday April 4 2016.
Tickets priced at £20 are available in person at both Bath and Bristol branches of Nicholas Wylde, by telephone on 01225 462826, by email firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets will also be available during Bath in Fashion week at all events.
All proceeds from ticket sales will go to support three different charities, including People Against Poverty, a global charity organisation that Nicholas Wylde has been supporting for many years; RUH Cancer Care Appeal and Breast Cancer Now
Nicholas said: “This is an amazing opportunity to work with an incredible, vibrant designer in fashion and I know the results will be simply stunning. I’m so pleased that this is happening as it will prove to be one of the high-lights of our Grand Finale Designer Fashion show for Bath in Fashion 2016.”
